Jun Cheol Oh is working as a visiting researcher here through a long term fellowship of overseas studies supported by Korean government. Jun received his PhD in a department of material science and engineering at POSTECH, South Korea in 2002. His PhD’s thesis was about the surface treatment of titanium alloys by high energy electron beam irradiation. After his graduation he worked as a post-doc at University of Oxford in 2003, and NIMS(Nation Institute of Material Science) of Japan in 2004. During the post-doc, he researched on the 3DAP(3 dimensional atom probe) analyses for investigating the nano-microstructure of aluminum and magnesium alloys. In May 2005, he started to work as a patent examiner in KIPO(Korean Intellectual Property Office), and handled the patent in the area of imaging device, ferrous and non-ferrous alloys and surface treatment. Also he had passed the qualification of a patent attorney in 2010.
